This journal covers the period 1870 to 1889. During this time Rev. Mead lived and worked in Coeyman, N.Y.(1870-1873) and the Reformed Church of Keyport in Keyport, N.J. (1873-1890).  He was born in Chesterville, N.Y. in 1846 and died in 1919 in Passaic, N.J.

Throughout the journal, Rev. Mead made notations in his journal about births, marriages and deaths of church members, as well as kept tallies about how many individuals joined his church through accessions (either by letter, confession or baptism). His notations are often confusing and were not eaily represented in a typewritten transcription.

Written in Mead's hand are passages from the Bible as well as portions of John Greenleaf Whittier's, Our Master, and other poems.
 
Other items of interest:

Included in this collection are letters and information related to the genealogy of the Mead family (including the military service of some family members). Rev. Mead's wife, Sarah L. Mead's, funeral was held on August 12, 1886. Notable suffragists and women's rights advocates Susan B. Anthony, Lucy Stone and Lucretia Mott are mentioned on page 284.


In July 1878, Rev. Mead was involved in a church controversy related to his dealings with church member Mr. William F. LeRoy.  Although the journal covers this period of
controversy, it is not mentioned at all within the journal.

Brackets [   ] were used to denote illegible handwriting. If attempts were made to decipher the word then those legible characters or words were included within the brackets.

Parentheses (   ) were used to add clarification or provide insight and were not part of Rev. Mead's original document.

Follows is an index of names found in the journal, and their pages.
